Press the ink pads on a sleek surface, activate them with water, and create the droplets with a small paintbrush. Protect your cardstock by masking it with the stencil in the Wendy Vecchi Bravo Stamp, Die & Stencil Set.

Use Pink Peony and Violet on the larger flower, and Tiger Lily and Sunflower on the smaller ones.
